228 Presents: "Val-oween: A Goth-Tinted Revue!"
When + Where
Feb 17, 2024, 7:00 PM – 11:00 PM
The Gem, 66 N Main St, Spring City, PA 19475, USA
The mischief-makers at 228 Productions and The Soundbank Presents invite you to take another look at nobody's favorite heart-shaped holiday, dress it up in funereal finery, and paint it black... We're defiling the sacred space of The Gem Speakeasy with an 18+ show featuring burlesque headliner Penelope Rose (and friends), theater-punks Night Fury, the darkest goth-punk of Faux Fear, perennial songwriter fave Elissa Janelle Velveteen, and special guest emcees The Booze Brothers!
Guest emcees THE BOOZE BROTHERS stagger back to The Gem for a return engagement of slurred intros and bluesy tributes. Try not to blackout before the 2nd act again, boys! www.instagram.com/the_booze_brothers_band/
Known for her more boisterous and now-legendary runs with bands such as Molly Rhythm and Karma Bat (among many others) ELISSA JANELLE VELVETEEN returns for another emotive and powerful performance. Not for the weak of spine! https://elissajanellevelveteen.bandcamp.com/
FAUX FEAR is gloomy post-punk from Reading, Pa. Scarcity and minimalism are used as strong suits and the sound produced is reminiscent of '80s goth heavyweights like The Cure, Sisters of Mercy and Cocteau Twins. https://www.fauxfear.xyz/
NIGHT FURY is a Latina-fronted, theater/punk band based in Philadelphia -- a song-driven project that combines the theatricality of glam with the rawness of punk. The band comprises Nat Fury, Paul Severe, John Sho & Travis John. linktr.ee/nightfuryband
Burlesque beauty PENELOPE ROSE takes the stage alongside special guests Ms. Anthropy and The Kittens to bring you a spooky sexy good time. These ladies are here to tease, please, and may just bring you to your knees with this dazzling display of sensuality. https://www.instagram.com/pennyrosexo/
